DV #231 Shaped Cards, no Squares or Rectangles

Our challenge today at Dream Valley, and Sponsored by The Paper Shelter, is shaped cards. Any shape you like as long as it’s not a square or a rectangle.

I have used an image from The Paper Shelter called Coffee Break, which I coloured with polychromos pencils. My shape is made with Sue Wilson’s noble octagon dies, as are all the mats and layers. The papers are from Craft Consortium from their Watercolour and Light Tones Grunge papers. Gems also from my stash.

I made up my own sentiment as the card is for my Daughter who, when not working, is either taking photos of birds and wildlife or editing them!

CCM #261 Lots of Layers

I hope you have all had a fabulous Summer. We are back today at Crafty Cardmakers after our long Summer break, and we are kicking off the challenges with Lots Of Layers.

I have used a cute new set of papers from Craft Consortium from the Gift of Giving range. What better way to get lots of layers than decoupage! So also from the same range they have a decoupage kit. I have used two papers from the 6” pad, plus the kitten decoupage. The ornate frame diecut was cut from the lemon paper from the centre as it was going to be covered by the balloon paper, so why waste the middle!

The sentiment comes from a huge year of sentiments pad from Craftwork Cards, but it was the wrong shape so I had to trim it into a square. The gems are coloured with copics to match the design.

DV #230 Add Gems or Pearls

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is to add gems or pearls. We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments

I have used their lovely image ‘Oh My’ for my card. I printed her and then coloured her with my copics, and fussy cut her out.

My papers are all from Kaiserkraft’s Pink Gelato 6.5” paper pad. I love this size of paper as it’s a perfect fit for a 7” scalloped card base!

The scalloped and plan circles are using Julie’ Hickey’s die, but the intricate diecut is a spellbinder die.

My butterflies are a combination of different brands.

The pearls are white pearls coloured with the same yellow I used on her dress to match the design. The gems on the butterflies are coloured to co-ordinate with those too, and there are two little gems on the centres of her hair bows.
